ANALYTICAL MECHANICS
Let dF denote the force acting on the area, on the upper base, of a ring of radius r and width dr, then the stress
equals
But if 6 is the angle of twist at the upper

Therefore by Hooke's law dF       , rd

In this case X is called modulus of shearing elasticity or, simply, shear modulus. Solving the preceding equation for dF we get
Therefore the torque acting upon the area of the ring is

where G is the total torque applied at the upper end and a the radius of the cylinder. Thus the torque necessary to produce a given angle of twist varies directly as the fourth power of the radius and inversely as the length. On the other hand for a given shaft the torque varies directly with the angle of twist.
The torsional rigidity of the shaft is defined as the torque necessary to produce a unit angular twist; therefore
